Is it possible to underline text with some height between text and underline line?

Issue

today I am trying to make sticker.ly app UI in a flutter. But I stuck in adding space between underline and text. here is my code

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

class Home extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _HomeState createState() => _HomeState();
}

class _HomeState extends State<Home> {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      body: Column(
        children: <Widget>[
          Container(
            padding: EdgeInsets.all(13),
            margin: MediaQuery.of(context).padding,
            child: Column(
              children: <Widget>[
                Row(
                  children: <Widget>[
                    Text('For You', style: TextStyle(fontWeight: FontWeight.bold, fontSize: 16, decoration: TextDecoration.underline,),),
                    SizedBox(width:8),
                    Text('Sticker', style: TextStyle(color: Colors.black54, fontWeight: FontWeight.bold, fontSize: 16),),
                    SizedBox(width:8),
                    Text('Status', style: TextStyle(color: Colors.black54, fontWeight: FontWeight.bold, fontSize: 16),),
                  ],
                ),
              ],
            ),
          ),
        ],
      ),
    );
  }
}

and here I want to add space between underline and Text('For You') . is there any way to do this in a much better way?

Solution

Here’s a simple hacky way to do it:

Text(
            "Forgot Password?",
            style: TextStyle(
              shadows: [
                Shadow(
                    color: Colors.red,
                    offset: Offset(0, -5))
              ],
              color: Colors.transparent,
              decoration:
              TextDecoration.underline,
              decorationColor: Colors.blue,
              decorationThickness: 4,
              decorationStyle:
              TextDecorationStyle.dashed,
            ),
          )

I wrote an article about text underlining with a few other solutions but this is my favorite.
